Trivia

The garbage pail kid facial puppet heads (masks) required more detail work for facial animation prior to filming. The heads were not properly completed by the effects team because of financial reasons and the time factor related to filming. Rod Amateau, in-spite of the unfinished heads, made the film on schedule, expecting the puppet head effects animation to improve during the film schedule. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where Ali Gator is riding the ATV to "The Toughest Bar On Earth", he reaches up to scratch his head, and you clearly see the separation between his arm and the "alligator arm". See more »

Dodger: Nope. The pet shop's out of unicorns, too.
Captain Manzini: No wonder there's no magic in the world today. You can't get the ingredients.

Absolutely Awful
20 November 2005 | by (Centreville, Maryland, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie came on at around 6 AM on Cinemax this morning, and out of curiosity aroused from the fact that they would make a movie based on that utterly ridiculous card game, me and my friend sat down and decided to watch it. And almost instantly we were perplexed. Absolutely flabbergasted by the fact that a movie studio would go ahead and produce this movie. It is by far one of the most poorly written movies I have ever seen. The bizarre plot never seems to come together and make sense. The gags run utterly flat and actually tend to leave you with a sick feeling in your stomach. Not to mention one of the poorest makeup jobs in film history. As for the acting, one word can describe it: atrocious. The actors, with the exception only in some cases for Anthony Newley, seem to be doing nothing more than shouting their lines through the almost forced emotion, which comes over as horridly flat and unbelievable. If you're actually interested in this movie, I would go ahead and recommend it. A spectacle such as this film is something you rarely come upon.
